I’m out of energy. I have no ambition. It’s No Motivation Monday – at least for  me. After a week of going non stop every day, I’ve come to a screeching halt. I’m just too tired to do anything. Anything. My WIP is calling to me, a pile of books taunt me from a corner and my craft projects lay dormant. In the past I would beat myself up and force myself to do something. Anything. How could I just waste a day? Not accomplish something? Not check off anything on my To Do list?

I’ve learned to cut myself a break. To go with the flow. Sometimes you’ve just got to veg a little and listen to your body. And this body is saying “watch a little junk television. How about a decorating show? Maybe a cup of tea and feet up on the ottoman?” And I’m listening.

So for today, here’s a picture of my accomplice in lazy land – Yogi, my Cocker Spaniel. Just look at that face! If you’re having a No Motivation Monday, take heart. I remember a Christmas song from a special I loved as a child. The words came to me today. “There’s always tomorrow….” It can all wait until tomorrow. Today I’m just going to enjoy a little down time with Yogi.


Whatever you do or don’t do today, just relax and enjoy it!

    Yes, I believe I will just relax. I’m glad I’m not the only one feeling blah today. Take care and enjoy your time off today.

    I am not motivated as well. After my hospital stay, my,energy levels are next to nothing. I am trying a vitamin supplement. I need to want to get back to work at something. I have tied up all my loose ends. I need to make new pottery. I need a renewal of joy.

      I imagine a hospital stay would drain your energy and creativity, Christina. Nurture yourself and give yourself permission to slowly get back to
      creating. It takes time. For me, I always try to get back to the reason why I write. For the love of it. I hope you’ll soon be at your potter’s wheel
      just for the pure love of it. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
